I enjoy watching the look on the face of someone when I have given them a gift I know is just perfect for them! It is such a satisfying feeling to be able to bless someone in this way. But even more than this, I love being able to bless someone without them knowing I was the source of the gift. . .

Christmas is the season of giving, but Sara isn’t sure she is up to the task.
Playing secret angel in high school was fun, and now, years later, Sara has the opportunity to do it once more on a bigger scale. She enlists the help of Gabe, her long-time best friend, to come up with a deserving recipient. But something is off with Gabe—he’s more attentive than usual.
The Christmas season has put Gabe in a reflective mood. His evaluation of his life has left him lonely and wanting more. But can his heart have its desire? That’s up to Sara.
Can these two long-time best friends navigate their changing relationship, or will the romance Grinch steal their Christmas joy?
I received a complimentary copy of this book. This gift did not influence my opinion or review.
It seems I’ve been reading a huge number of books lately with extremely serious subject matter. And I was needing a break. Fortunately for me, I had a copy of Kimberly Rose Johnson’s newest book waiting for me…
This sweet story encompasses the best aspects of holiday stories: God’s love, giving, and romance! I found it humorous that Sara was so worried about finding the right recipient for the gift she was tasked with giving because she clearly she loved to give and to bless others. Then again, this was part of what made her so endearing.
Best friends falling in love with each other is a favorite trope of mine, so I was already predisposed to enjoy this story. The great relationship Gabe and Sara had, the way they complimented each other so well, helped each other so naturally, and the way they simply enjoyed each other made it clear to pretty much everyone (except Sara!) that they were in love. And I wanted their relationship to turn into something more.
My one disappointment with Sara’s Gift was that things were not more developed though I understand this isn’t always possible with a novella.
While you will want to read this yourself, it would also make a nice gift for readers you know who might also want a sweet holiday treat.
